The author reflects on the impact of sea change on most commercial mariners in Australia. The author notes that most forward looking fishermen were changing their focus to offshore oil, aquaculture, marine tourism and other activities. He points out that fishing was dying but the other sectors of the maritime industry were becoming established or reviving around the Australian coast and comments on the positive side-effects and consequential benefits of the change. The author also discusses marine tourism and projects around the coast.
